Christmas Tree at Washington Square Park, NYC

Washington Square Park is a wonderful place.  Since it’s so close to NYU, it’s always active with students and faculty.  But, there is also a very diverse population that work and live in the surrounding area.  It’s very eclectic even for NYC.  It’s even a very popular location for photographers and videographers.  (Being near NYU’s Tisch Film & TV School doesn’t hurt either.)  In fact, the last time I was there this summer, I walked into the CBS crew filming Person of Interest with James Caviezel.

Because I think of Washington Square as a warm weather location, I never knew that they had there own Christmas Tree.  In fact, it is a tradition that predates Rockefeller Center by 7-years.  The Washington Square Association sponsored the 45-foot tree and there is caroling in the park on the weekends.  If you are in the area, you should stop by.  It’s beautiful at night.

NOTE – these photos are not HDR.  Instead, they are single photos which I used Topaz Adjust 5 to pull out details,  balancing the the light and dark areas.
